    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Good morning all and Happy Bastille day for those celebratingToday I'm off to meet a friend over some coffee. she's also one of the few friends that also apreciate niche perfumes and scents in general. Looking forward to get out of the apartment a bit,since I tend to think too much when I'm here. A good thing my brother and sister also are here for the holiday! Sotd is Dzing! No real summer heat here, just rain, so I can still wear my spicy scents without any problems of cloyingness

    Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise
    Notes: bergamot, neroli, wild fennel flower, star anise, oleander, tuberose, frangipani, purple vanilla orchid, clove, white amber, vetiver, vanilla bourbon absolute, tonka bean

    Despite that rather hearty-sounding note listing, this is a sheer, almost watery fragrance, with transparent florals and a non-foody vanilla. I love anise in fragrances and can pick out its refreshing character here, yet it is subtle and well-blended. Very soothing and pretty scent.

    Take care, everyone!

    Infini just did not want to come out and play today. Can't say I blame it in this heat. I've moved on to Pure White Linen, which has been one of my very favorites now for a long time. So strange that it would turn out to be this one, but I can't be without it.

    This evening I'm testing some oceanic scents. I've tried Ebba's By Sea, and it was lovely the ten minutes it stuck around, and Il Profumo's Aria di Mare, which was also nice for about ten minutes.

    Now I've moved onto Acqua di Sale by Profumum. Oh my god. Want. That's fantastic. It's fresh and marine and it smells breezy and if it were a colour it would be a very bright turquoise. I love it. In By Sea and Aria di Mare, there seemed to be a lot of violet (violet in marine scents?!), but there's none of that in Acqua di Sale. It's pure ocean. Maybe the Adriatic Sea.

    So that's probably going straight on my wishlist. Another one! Sigh.

    After a day in Coco Mademoiselle and a late afternoon in "KH1" I am now fragrant with vintage Aramis, vetiver and moss and patchouli and sandalwood heaven! (The bottle I got from a Basenoter is pretty doggone close to my original "this is Aramis" mystery scent from years ago...) Goes nicely with the basil and tomato smell permeating the house as I cook down 15 lbs. of tomatoes, various herbs and spices, to "put up" a few pints of tomato sauce.

    Happy Bastille Day!

    For my day of grouting I wore Nocturnes de Caron, which is such a perfect scent on a summer day; especially for physically stressful work.
